FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Philips Product Delivers on Department’s Challenge to Replace Common Light Bulb with Energy-Saving Lighting Alternative

August 03, 2011

The U.S. Department of Energy today announced that Philips Lighting North America has won the 60-watt replacement bulb category of the Bright Tomorrow Lighting Prize (L Prize) competition. The Department of Energy’s L Prize challenged the lighting industry to develop high performance, energy-saving replacements for conventional light bulbs that will save American consumers and businesses money.

Submitted in 2009, the Philips LED bulb successfully completed 18 months of intensive field, lab, and product testing to meet the rigorous requirements of the L Prize competition – ensuring that performance, quality, lifetime, cost, and availability meet expectations for widespread adoption and mass manufacturing. If every 60-watt incandescent bulb in the U.S. was replaced with the 10-watt L Prize winner, the nation would save about 35 terawatt-hours of electricity or $3.9 billion in one year and avoid 20 million metric tons of carbon emissions.

“The L Prize challenges the best and brightest minds in the U.S. lighting industry to make the technological leaps forward that can greatly reduce the money we spend to light our homes and businesses each year,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. “Not only does the L Prize challenge innovative companies like Philips to make LED technology even more energy efficient, it also spurs the lighting industry to make LEDs affordable for American families.”

  1. Outstanding news. Affordable solutions for homeowners to save money on energy.

  2. Sounds good,
    looking forward to trying it!

    That said, ALL lighting has advantages, for different situations:
    None should be banned, provided it’s safe to use.

    RE “Tera watt savings” from lighting switchover:
    Funny how DOE own figures contradict it!

    Less than 1% US energy usage, 1-2% grid electricity saved from lighting switchover
    based on DOE statistics – http://ceolas.net/#li171x
    There are as seen much more relevant ways to save energy
    (in generation, grid distribution, real consumption waste).
